TUCSON, ARIZONA (BNS): The US Navy has awarded Raytheon Company $235 million for Standard Missile-6 all-up round production missiles and spares.

Raytheon will begin delivery in 2018. The missiles will be deployed on Aegis cruisers and destroyers to support US Navy fleet operations, Raytheon said.

The contracted missiles will include an anti-surface capability, which was demonstrated in early 2016 during a highly successful tactical demonstration event off the coast of Kauai, it said.

The SM-6 also set a new record for maximum down-range and maximum cross-range intercepts in over-the-horizon missions. The display of offensive capability established SM-6 as a multi-mission missile with expanded capabilities in Anti-Air Warfare, Sea-Based Terminal and Anti-Surface Warfare, it added.
